winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Poured a clear reddish brown with a moderste white head and good lacing. Bready with sweet caramel malt, raisins, bananas, and a moderate hop flavor with a dose of bitterness. Not as intense as the 8 or 12 but much more quaffable.

alexanderj (3539) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Pours a deep amber, with a reddish hue. Off white head. Aroma of raisin, fruit, candy sugar and yeast. A light wiff of alcohol. Flavors much of the same. Complex and smooth. Sweet malt and fruit; dark fruit. Liked it the more I drank. Pretty good.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Pours cloudy and dark orangish brown with a thick tan head consisting of variously sized bubbles. The aroma is very fruity and syrupy smelling - like a fruit and molasses jam to spread over your pancakes. There is some alcohol and some yeast aroma, too. The flavor starts off with some caramel and chocolate, and then the fruit and molasses flavors hit the middle of the tongue. There is a distinct flavor of roasted grains towards the back of the mouth along with some hops - almost like a splash of porter in a glass of belgian ale. The mouthfeel is not very heavy and quite crisp with carbonation. The yeast, fruit, and other crazy flavors - despite being detectable - are quite muted overall (likely due to the low gravity of this brew compared to the other St. Bernardus beers). Overall, pleasant.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Bottle from Santa, Thanks. Pours out a dark brown color with a thick tan head on it. Looks very creamy. Smell is malty and sweet, somewhat spicy. Fruity as well. Taste is sweet and I detect some spicy cinnamon flavors from within. Smooth and pretty complex. Very different from this brewery. Some fruity notes from this too. I liked it, but its too bad you cant buy it in 4 packs or singles, only in that mixed box. Pretty cool beer though.

PHXHOPLOVER (50) - LAVEEN, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Pours dark brown, translucent, with a large pillowy head, whick recedes fairly fast to a thin covering which lasts for the rest of the beer. Very high carbonation level. Fairly subdued fruitiness, which made it seem almost lagerish, it’s so smooth. Fruitiness becomes much more evident as the beer warmed toward the end. Dont drink too cold! Sweet aftertaste, mild bitterness.

Best by 13-08-07. This Belgian Ale pours a deep amber color from a 330ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is raisins, cherries, woody and herbal with some alcohol. A medium bodied double. Malts are fruity and semi sweet. A touch earthy and woody. A slightly sweet and fruity start blends into a woody and herbal dry finish. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Tranquillity (1860) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle at the Rover in Göteborg with Gnoff. Orange-red colour with a thin head. Cherry and salty aroma. The taste continues on the same theme but is a bit disharmonic unless the temperature is warm enough. Good stuff (c)!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Pours a brownish amber honey w/ a full semi creamy froth. Aroma of dried dark fruits and rock candy. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Crisp flavors of malted, dried dark fruits stewed in a pot full of gravel. Apricot, plumb, leather, earth, tobacco, and slight medicinal banana spice flavors emerge. Long finish w/ a blanced bittering. Finish has a slight sour citrus undertone. Overall: a dry style w/ complex flavors. Well balanced. Highly recommended.
